Introduction

Whilst working in the Gambia, many years ago a group of supervisors would descend on the tourist hotels in the area and enjoy these barbequed shrimps with a ˜sundowner", especially at the Atlantic Hotel where they staff cooked these to perfection. These provide a welcome change on a barbecue during warm summer weather. These are simple to prepare as is the peanut dip to accompany these.
